Question about TurboChef C3 Single Oven
What do i need to fix this problem
You would need a clamp on amp meter and some basic electrical know how because you are dealing with a serious amount of power to seriously hurt or kill. You could try just looking at the hv transformers. sometimes you can see a burn mark which lets you know to change it, also check the fuses the third one (20 amp) is usually blown in this case

Discharging can be done by unplugging the oven and then short across the red wire on each capacitor to the chassis with an insulated screwdriver.
1. Remove the top and right side covers.
2. Enter the test mode. (From the OVEN OFF mode, simultaneously press
BACK and ENTER keys, enter the code 9-4-2-8 and press ENTER).
3. Place amp meter on the brown "ct" wire for amp reading. Wire is coming from the primary side of the
HV transformers and looping through the black plastic current transformer on the main control board and back to the HV transformers.
4. Press and hold the MGTRON soft key on the keypad to energize the magnetrons.
5. Observe the amperage on the meter. Typical readings are:
NORTH AMERICA: 12-14 amps at 240VAC/13-16 amps at 208VAC.
If you are getting 12-16 amps then change the I/O board.
If you are only getting 7 or 8 amps then only one side of the of the HV system is not working correctly. You will need to figure out which side is bad by un-plugging the power wires going to one of the HV transformers. Then test again and if you get no amps you have found the bad side. Replace the HV transformer, cap and diode.
If you are not getting any amps then check the F3 fuse it will most likely be blown. Replace and start over
Good Luck If you have anymore questions just ask.
